Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

Thank you for your help and expertise! We'd love a beautiful new site (we finished an audit) that is built on Squarespace. We currently have a site on this platform and we are able to navigate it. Thank you!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a Squarespace site, a website audit, beautiful photos, copy, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have lots of enthusiasm, appreciation, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to use our resources to impact more low income community members, including free arts classes & performances for children, Back Pain classes for adults, and Fall Prevention classes for seniors.

Our current site was built by us with no expertise and doesn't convey the full scope of what we do in the community. Having a stronger internet presence will educate the public about what we do and attract more donors, which will allow us to scale our arts and wellness progams with low income community members.
